A SUMMARY OF MY PHD

My  PhD was concerned with mapping under-five mortality, its determinants and their impact at the county level in Kenya since 1965. I was based KEMRI-Wellcome Trust, Kenya, an affiliated research centre of The Open University 

TRACKING THE IMPROVEMENT IN CHILD SURVIVAL IN KENYA

Here I shared the progress Kenya has made in improving child survival in one of the morning shows on local television in Kenya.
